R2D2 Builders: 501ST Canadian Garrison

R2D2 Builders: There are over 20,000 members worldwide who belong to this online club. Members share ideas and methods on how to build their own astromechs from the Star Wars universe

501ST: Created in 1997, a costuming organization based on the Star Wars films and Tv shows that has grown into a world wide phenomenon. Our goal is to create the most authentic costumes and props possible.

Hands-on activity at the Festival:

R2D2 Builders/ 501ST: People are able to interact and have their photos taken with the astromechs and 501st members present. They can also ask about the clubs and inquire about how the astromech and costumes are made.
